What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

  • After many years of attorneys creating legal documents that "did the job" but were difficult to understand we decided to try once more. This time we found John Lutgens and it was like finding a gem among the grains of sand. John was very patient, listened to and worked with us, then crafted the documents we needed in a way that was concise and understandable. John and his staff are kind, helpful, and caring. We recommend his services to anyone in need of legal services.

  • John Lutgens worked extremely hard to resolve some legal issues in Corvallis, OR. Despite his office being in Vancouver, WA, he drove all the way down to Corvallis for my arraignment and follow-up meetings. He was very easy to get a hold of and very prompt when answering any questions I had. John is a great lawyer that will make it his priority to get the best outcome for you and make the process as easy on the client as possible. Professional and fair, he is one of the best lawyers I have encountered, and I would recommend him to anyone needing any legal help, advice or representation.

    -- J. Chris L.
  • I was helping a friend by doing some research. I placed a call to his office in the morning, but he was in court. Mr. Lutgens did return my call that afternoon. I informed him that my friend had committed to another attorney already. Despite that, he asked me a few questions regarding the case, and gave me some very useful information. All this knowing he would not be representing us. A rare and commendable way of doing business in this day and age. Should I ever need legal assistance in the future, my first call will be to John Lutgens.

    -- John L. P.
  • I was searching for an Attorney on the internet and found Mr. Lutgens information and website very professional. I needed a consultation for my daughter in a case involving a minor. I appreciated Mr. Lutgens straight forwardness in answering our questions and providing solid information … to help make some important decisions that would affect my daughters future. He made us feel comfortable and confident without being judgmental. I would certainly contact him if I needed the services of an Attorney again.

    -- Dionne C.
